Microsoft Entra External ID - Federation with EntraID and impersonation feature

Gabriele Ghesla 26 Reputation points

I'm in the process of deciding which identity server/service to integrate with a set of applications. Since Azure AD B2C it's being replaced I'm not inclined to start with that service.

On the other hand, EntraID External tenant do not currently support a couple of features that I'm required to integrate:

  • Federation to EntraID Workforce tenants, in ortder to offer users the choice to login with business accounts
  • Impersonation, in order to let administrators account to login as a customer user to diagnose problems

I'm not in a hurry and can start the implementation process without those features, but I would need assurance that those will be availabe in the future.

Is there any indication if those feature will be added and an indicative timeline?
